Judgement reserved in Malema Equality Court case
Judgement in the hate-speech case against African National Congress Youth League president Julius Malema was reserved in the Equality Court on Tuesday.
Magistrate Colleen Collis said she would indicate the date that judgement would be handed down at a later stage.
Malema was taken to court by the Sonke Gender Justice Network over his comments that President Jacob Zuma’s rape accuser had a nice time during the alleged incident.
Zuma was acquitted on the rape charge.
The Sonke Gender Justice Network said the comment was damaging to rape victims and women who were afraid to lodge rape complaints.
It wants a full apology and R50 000 in damages to be paid to a shelter for abused women.
Malema has maintained that his comment was based on the 2006 high court ruling that acquitted Zuma of rape.—Sapa. .
